About this book

This book provides case studies accompanied by questions and commentaries for the specialist registrar in diabetes and endocrinology, to assist with problem-based learning during their training. The case studies range from the everyday to the rare and complicated, presenting a strong foundation for the specialist trainee to prepare them for their qualifying exams and, more importantly, for their future clinical consultations.

Reviews

“Book presents cases in endocrinology and diabetes abstracted from real-life encounters with patients to show typical situations a clinician may encounter in the primary care office. … The cases include useful and thoughtful situations that exquisitely demonstrate the characteristics of the clinical situation. The case histories are extremely well presented and the explanations are relevant, concise, and easy to read. I highly recommend this book to every clinician.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2015)
